I've been thinking a lot about my entry way lately and its because I'm super excited about decorating it. I settled on a wallpaper - I haven't finished saving up for it though because it's the Scalamandre black and yellow Zebra pattern, Scalamandre = $$$. Wallpaper aside, I've been working on a plan for how to finish the rest of the room. I'd like to break the small space into two separate parts. The first, the entry 'moment' where as soon as we step in there is a spot to place our keys, hang our coats and drop the mail.
There's also a small cabinet for mine, Jack's and Rita's things, along with a drawer for menus. I used it in the past place and it still needs a paint job, any suggestions?
The next part of the room is the work/decorative/entertainment place that is anchored around the desk Jack built. I plan to use this as desk for my home office needs as well as have it look a like a pretty dry bar at parties or the typical console table for the rest of the time. Now, all of these 'looks' will rely mainly on styling and I know that's how I'll be able to pull the room together.
For inspiration I've gathered my favorite examples of well styled entryway tables.
